Musk indicated that he wants to make Twitter more like WeChat which is the so-called super app that is popular in China. Supper app allows users to use a single application to access a broad range of services, including messaging, communications, ordering food, and summoning transportation.



Musk stressed that he would make Twitter radically better. He expressed that when he was creating X.com in 1999, he had a grand vision for the financial service company. He said that with the acquisition of Twitter, he could accelerate the process of creating the ‘everything app’ in 5 years.



Previously, Musk had been trying to withdraw himself from the deal. Elon Musk alleged that Twitter misled him about the seriousness of the bots on the social media platform. Twitter acknowledged that it had received Musk’s offer to complete the deal at the price of USD 54.20 per share.
